I have been exclusively breastfeeding my daughter, almost 6 months old, exclusively since birth. Now, that I would like to get her on the bottle, I try pumping and only get 3 oz. I know that she gets more than that because she has been gaining weight nicely and is very healthy. I am sure that it is just my body not used to the pump. I have been pumping more (once in the morning and once at night) lately. I would like to be able to leave her with my hubby or mother for more than a few hours-occassionally- so I can have some Mommy time!
What else can I do to get more out of the pump? I have the Medela Pump in Style electric pump that I purchased brand new.
Please help! Thanks!
